It's Saturday at last—no school, no homework, no lessons.
The day belongs to June. She can search for wild animals, learn how to fly, or maybe even discover long-lost treasure. But before she is free to enjoy her day, June must face one big problem: her list of chores! Luckily, the only thing bigger than June's list of chores is her imagination, and she finds that with a little ingenuity even humdrum activities like eating her breakfast, sweeping the leaves, and cleaning her room can become an adventure.

Leslie Lammle is an artist whose primarily watercolor and pencil illustrations have appeared frequently in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and various magazines. She lives in Salt Lake City, Utah.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2—Imagination runs rampant in this story that describes a child's Saturday morning. Faced with a list of chores to complete before she can play, June proceeds to lighten her tasks by imagining a huge bird teaching her to fly to the mailbox, a genial wind blowing her and the leaves across the steps of her house and into a field, and monsters cleaning under her bed. When she and her dog finish their work, they face the front door ready to begin the day. Colorful, humorous cartoon illustrations with plenty to look at fill the pages, contrasting reality with June's fantasies in a style a little reminiscent of William Joyce's. Although not an essential purchase, the book should find many small adherents.—Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA
